Spider, on behalf of the entire school I would like to extend our gratitude and recognition of the important work that you do to support youth across the GTA. To use a popular phrase  of the legendary  Muhammad Ali “everybody’s talking about Spider Jones”, after his visit . Your message of hope, perseverance and the human will to overcome adversity in spite of daunting obstacles resonated with your audience. Your unique skills to engage a packed auditorium of students ( for two consecutive assemblies )  is a testimony to your lifelong commitment and dedication to supporting and mentoring impressionable young men and women, while challenging them to redouble their efforts to stay true to their goals and dreams for success in life. Thank- you again for your support of our students !

Spider Jones is a true symbol of hope and inspiration to our youth. Here is an individual who has overcome a life of insurmountable odds. His stay in school message is powerful and moving and has a tremendous impact on kids.

It is utterly amazing to see how quickly he is able to capture the attention of a young audience. His presentation moves kids like nothing I’ve ever seen.

I wanted to thank Spider so very much for coming out to our Career Day today and making the day such a huge success. The students loved hearing from you. I have to share with you that I was watching some of our more difficult students throughout the presentation and I have never seen them so engaged. Your message was positive and reached many of our students (and our staff!).

What a wonderful inspiration you are, thank you so very much for all that you do to reach out and empower our youth!
